Uhhhhhhhhhhhh

Normally . . . it's quite helpful . . . conventional, . . . expected . . . useful

to post at least a link

when one wants something seen.

Or are you expecting folks to telepathically ferret out the image and view it that way?

Or am I blind to a hidden link in your post?

Or . . . .???

What is that ''triangular'' shape tower? And why does it need to rotate?

I was just looking at that myself and was thinking maybe it's for radar tracking or just a giant building with lots of solar panels. Area 51 has gone green!

It's an RCS tower, which is used to test the Radar Cross Section of aircraft. Northrop Grumman has one at their stealth development center.

An aircraft model is built (like the B-2) and a circular mounting bracket is placed in the bottom of the aircraft at the center of gravity. Then they lift it up on top of the RCS tower (Northrop's looks like a big thorn-shaped barb that gets skinnier as you go higher, I will try to find a picture).

Anyway, once they put the aircraft up there and bolt it in to the mount they can fire radar at it at a bunch of different angles and see what gets bounced back. Then they can work on the model and re-test it, etc.

The one at Northrop used the ring mount so the aircraft could be spun around in different directions because the radar was fixed. I wonder if the Area 51 tower spins on it's own from remote control? That would be easier than trying to manually turn the aircraft.

Here's a picture of Northrop's tower:



The aircraft is a model of Hitler's Horton 229 that was in development at the end of world war II. I saw a documentary this weekend where Northrop engineers were trying to see if it was designed to evade radar.

It was quite a remarkable plane. It was made almost entirely of plywood and had two jet engines!

This tower does not look like what is seen at a RCS site. This is a KMZ of the tower in question, Helendale, and Tejon:
RCS

I have a photo of the tower here:
